Hi June How very sensible and how good to hear what sounds like co-operative forward planning. If you are willing and able to look for care and your mother will be paying for her care my experience might help. I found that Social Services had a list of agencies which they emailed to me. I could then...
Hello Lacey May. That is a heavy load. I have only one person to care for. Others here will have more experience but I have found that even if the caree is self-funding Social Services can take on the job of finding a care agency. Have they tried and failed or have they just left it to you to do it ...
Merry Christmas, everyone. Yes, please, to the canapes. I know we already have jokes for the crackers but I have brought some of those novelty racing reindeer toys to go in them as well. After dinner and when we have had enough to drink we might feel competitive enough to try them out. Do we have to...
Thank you, belatedly, for your replies. DH did get reablement and rehabilitation (physio, OT etc). He was making real progress. Social Services then arranged a private company to come in to help with washing/dressing (which is what I wanted: although he will be paying I just don't have the time and ...
Diane, I have come late to this thread, but I am sorry to read everything that has happened to you. I just want to add that bowling bun is right - asking all those questions is what Occupational Therapists do. And you have done exactly right - telling them exactly what your situation is, tears and a...
Hi Thomas. That is a hard place to be. I’m going to relate what we use here, although I recognise that most you will be doing and some will not be relevant to you - apologies if it is not helpful. My husband has dysphasia following a brain tumour and treatment. He can talk fluently about abstract th...
Well, DH is home. I had problems logging in, so could not thank you for all the support until now. The equipment did arrive before DH and he was brought home for a short visit in advance to make sure we really could manage. The reablement team is still coming in four times a day and rehabilitation t...
Just to say again, thank you for the help. I now have pages of notes, names and 'phone numbers. There is also a discharge plan taking shape. If it works, DH should be brought back for a supervised visit after the first batch of equipment has arrived, to check how much he can do and to identify anyth...
Melly1 thank you for the link; I had not seen that page. Bowlingbun, I am going to read your reply again several times before the meeting and am practising my best broken record assertiveness technique. I feel better just knowing what some of the pitfalls might be as forewarned really is forearmed; ...
First post, although I joined a long while ago. My husband has a brain tumour and has had a debulking operation, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. I have been caring for him (he has a speech loss, some cognitive problems and difficulty reading/writing) but he has been able to move around the house and ...
